It looks pretty rainy outside my window this morning, but luckily the wet weather will eventually subside and then become rather chilly this evening.
We’ll try to brighten everyone’s mood (and day) with a brand new ‘Daily Noontime’ – that is why we are here, right?
Tatum, Celtics cap road trip with win over the Utah Jazz
- Jayson Tatum is having a phenomenal second season with the Green and White – his amazing efforts were on display last night as he scored 33 points in 38 minutes which helped the Celtics beat the Jazz, 114-103. The win bumped Boston’s overall record to 41-17 – they should be able to use this momentum later this week when they host the Houston Rockets on Saturday, February 29th at 8:30 p.m.
Boston Red Sox have won their last two spring training outings
- While we anxiously await the ruling on the Red Sox cheating scandal from 2018, there is some good news to report this morning as the local nine have won not just one game recently, but two. Boston beat the Pittsburgh Pirates, 6-3, yesterday and the Baltimore Orioles one day earlier by a score of 12-4.
- Boston will compete against the Philadelphia Phillies this afternoon at 1:05 p.m. before visiting the Minnesota Twins tomorrow for a 1:05 p.m. first pitch. And on Saturday, the New York Yankees will visit the Sox for a 1:05 p.m. start.
- Finally, we are less than one month away from the start of the Sox season – Boston will begin its 2020 campaign in Canada against the Toronto Blue Jays on March 26th.
Can the Boston Bruins return to their winning ways?
- It seems like its been a while since the Boston Bruins won a game – in fact, their last win came six days ago when they beat the Calgary Flames on the road. But perhaps tonight they will return to the win column when they face-off against the Dallas Stars at 7:30 p.m.
- According to a recent report, the Bruins may have to bid farewell to Torey Krug in the offseason due to the team’s salary cap.
Allen leads Babson College men’s lacrosse past Bates College
- Owen Allen netted an overtime goal yesterday against the Bobcats that helped the Babson College men’s lacrosse team defeat the Bobcats for the first time since 1990. Allen, who is from Franklin, Massachusetts, finished Wednesday’s non-conference clash with three goals.
- With the win, Babson improves to 2-0 and will look to continue their momentum on Saturday, February 29th when they host Union College for a 12 p.m. face-off.
MIT, Smith College, and Springfield College advance to the NEWMAC semifinals
- The MIT, Springfield College, and Smith College women’s basketball teams extended their respective campaigns to Friday, February 28th by scoring wins last night in the New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) quarterfinals.
- MIT will visit Babson Collegetomorrow – the Beavers are the top seed in this year’s tournament – while Smith will make the short trek to Springfield. Both contests will tip-off at 7 p.m.
Hockey East, CBS Interactive announce a multi-year partnership
- The Hockey East announced on Wednesday a “multi-year agreement to stream all Hockey East men’s and women’s games” on CBS’ subscription video streaming service, CBS All-Access. Fans of both the men’s and women’s leagues will be able to watch games on the platform, beginning today.
